The service will run between Auckland and Suva with a transit time of seven days – two days quicker than previously. There is already an air freight service between the two countries.
DHL’s Fiji manager, Mahendra Singh, said:
“This new weekly LCL service helps our customers leverage this growth momentum better as it helps Fiji-based importers receive their products from New Zealand faster, which could then lead to speedier re-distribution to the local and neighbouring markets.”
Fiji’s exports have been increasing over the last 10 years and DHL have identified it as a market for development. The firm currently handles around two million cubic metres worth of LCL freight worldwide each year, 97 per cent of which are carried via its in-house network.
